After Saying Yes!
Not only is your engagement session an opportunity for you to reveal the big news to family and friends, it is also an opportunity to do it with style and class! Engagement sessions are pretty laid back and are used typically to give the couple the opportunity to find their comfort level with both me and the camera . Remember that your engagement session is an opportunity to express both your personality and the essence of your relationship. I recommend two to three outfits, one that is more casual/relaxed and one that is more formal. Engagement sessions can range from one to three hours with one to three locations.
Be in the Moment!
Engagement sessions are typically a couple's first time in front of a professional camera together so it is expected that it will feel both awkward and difficult, but worry not, that is actually NORMAL. Throughout the session I will guide and instruct you on how to pose and interact; and together we will create timeless images. Your only job during the session and time together is to have fun and enjoy this time with your significant other.
One thing I recommend to my couples is to put as much effort in the where (locations) as they did the what (outfits) of the session. The locations used for your engagement session should be both an extension of your personality while being complimentary to your outfits. As a general rule I arrive to most sessions with a few locations in mind, but rather my clients choose their locations to make the session more personal for them. I believe this also bring a certain comfort level to the session which will be express in the imagery captured throughout the session.
I will capture your wedding story with purpose. Through experience, I have learned the art of engaging a client, timing classic moments, knowing when not to shoot and how to emotionally connect and capture that emotion in each frame. While I will capture more images than I deliver, you can be assured that the images you receive will tell a story of love and joy.
